Birthday Cake and a Linky!

Do any of you guys make your kids birthday cakes?  I started making birthday cakes two years ago...just for my family.  I had not idea what I was doing so I took a class to learn the basics.  There are a lot of classes offered at craft stores.  I took mine at Michael's.  Here are a few of the cakes I made
My first cake!  I made this just by reading online.
First cake I made in class. 
My clown cake.  We learned how make the bodys.
There was a final cake where we learned how to make roses, but I had surgery and missed the class.  Lucky for me I have boys and will not need roses for there cakes!

Preston's Monster Truck cake.  I did a post on this you can read it here.
This is the cake I made last night.  It was my first 3-D cake.  I think it turned out pretty good.

I would love to see what kind of cakes or other goodies you guys have made.  Linkup and share with all of us!
